Open Faculty Positions

Assistant Professor of Exercise Science (Tenure-Track)

  • Open now.  We will likely start reviewing applications in fall 2020 (Sept./Oct.). However, candidate who submit before Dec. 1 will be considered.

  • Those with a research agenda who can take advantage of our well-stocked Applied Neuromuscular Physiology Lab and our university-wide Brain Initiative are preferred (e.g. neuromuscular physiology, motor control of human movement, aging); however, all areas of expertise will be considered.


Postdoctoral Fellowships

No current openings.

Individuals seeking to apply for NRSA Individual Postdoctoral Fellowships (F32) should contact the potential faculty advisor prior to submitting an application.


Graduate Programs

We are always looking for great students who share our research interests and passion for science. We anticipate having at least five open graduate assistantship positions for students starting in fall 2020.

Potential Ph.D. students should contact a potential faculty advisor, one presumably with shared interests, prior to applying for the program. Assistantships are available, but competitive, and come with a full-tuition waiver, stipend and health insurance coverage. For more information about the application process, please contact our interim graduate coordinator, Dr. Jason DeFreitas ( 


Potential master's students should also contact Dr. Jason DeFreitas

( for more information about the program.



Undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate school or research should contact a potential faculty advisor, one presumably with shared interests, about the possibilities of performing an internship in our lab. Ph.D. students actively conducting an IRB approved study may also supervise research internships.
